During the installation DDFileCatcher does all the right things. It lets you place the program files where you want them, plus it asks permission to put icons on your Desktop and Quick Launch area. You also are give the option to install addins for Microsoft Word and Excel.

Here is what DDFileCatcher does. (From the Help File)

It allows you to quickly make lists of filepaths of files, shortcuts and folders which are dropped onto it. If, for example, you search for files in Windows Explorer, you can drop these files onto DDFileCatcher, which will then display them with their full filepaths.If you need to add these files to a document, you can use the "Send filepathslist to Clipboard" command and paste them. It's also possible to save the filepaths list in a textfile. You can add a comment to the file and automatically add the time and date the file was saved.

Just to give you a better idea of how it works, I went to my C drive and randomly dragged and dropped some files into DDFileCatcher. I the pushed the button "Text to Clipboard". I then pasted the results here:

C:\Program Files\DateInTray\license.txt
C:\Program Files\FireTrust\aol-echo.wav
C:\Program Files\Google\Google Desktop Search\docs\privacy.html
C:\Program Files\Kensington\MouseWorks\mouseinfo.ocx
C:\Program Files\NetMeeting\nmasnt.dll

I think that you get the gist of it by now.

In conclusion DDFileCatcher has found a niche market that no one else has taken advantage of. The really good news is not that they have found this niche, but how much thought they have put into the program. The options are really well thought out, and DDFileCatcher is extremely easy to use. A Real Winner!

Try It! Buy It!
